Chairperson of GladAfrica Championship outfit Royal AM FC, Andile Mpisane made his debut in a 3-1 league win over Uthongathi on Saturday, after unveiling himself as the club's latest signing.

Mpisane, who at 19-years-old became the youngest chairperson in PSL history in October 2020, has now also became the latest member of the playing squad.

Son of businesswoman Shauwn Mkhize, Mpisane is listed as a musician - signed to the family's Royal AM Entertainment label - a reality TV star and now a football player.

Mkhize took over of Royal Kings in October 2019, renaming the club Royal AM FC, after Andile Mpisane's initials with her son soon after becoming the club's chairperson.

Mpisane, who was unveiled as the club's latest signing a month ago, was trending on Twitter on Monday evening as footage circulated of his debut after being introduced as a substitute in his side's victory.

Mpisane showed off his musical talents too in a recent Instagram post, performing in front of a large crowd.
